Firma Melodiya presents a collection of Sergei Taneyev’s best works in the interpretation of Evgeny Svetlanov.
“A great Russian musician, whose all efforts inspire deep respect,” musicologist Boris Asafyev wrote about Taneyev. As a composer, pianist, music theorist and educator, disciple of Pyotr Tchaikovsky and Nikolai Rubinstein, teacher of Rachmaninoff and Scriabin, professor and director of Moscow Conservatory, Taneyev made an immense contribution to the Russian music at the turn of the 20th century. His work drew on the traditions of symphonic, chamber and opera music by Tchaikovsky, enriching them with intensive polyphonic development.
Cantata John of Damascus is Taneyev’s first composition endowed with artistic maturity (the author himself numbered it Opus 1). It is dedicated to the memory of his teacher Nikolai Rubinstein; the composition is based on the church chant Give rest with the saints, thoroughly elaborated, similarly to chorales in choral pieces by Johann Sebastian Bach. Symphony No. 4 in C minor is a masterpiece of Taneyev’s instrumental music, where the traditional structure of sonata-symphonic cycle is filled with intense dramatic movement “from the darkness to the light.”
The collection also features a refined concert suite for violin and orchestra and the symphonic entr’acte from the opera Oresteia (Temple of Apollo at Delphi) - an image of imperishable Light and Justice embodied in the image of the ancient god.
Taneyev’s compositions are recorded in the version of the USSR State Academic Symphony Orchestra conducted by of Evgeny Svetlanov - a major interpreter of the Russian classical music. The cantata was recorded with the participation of the Big Choir of the All-Union Radio and Central TV, the concert suite features Andrey Korsakov, People’s Artiste of the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic, one of the best students of Leonid Kogan.

Collection: Choral Collection
Subcollection: Voice and Choir

Firma Melodiya presents one of the brightest masterpieces of Russian choral music of the 20th century - Valery Gavrilin’s Chimes.

This composer is by right named Georgy Sviridov’s successor. The major motifs of Valery Gavrilin’s music are associated with folklore, images of the Russian north and native region of Vologda.

Chimes, a “performance symphony” as the composer defined the genre of the piece, was written for soloists, choir, oboe and percussion, and subtitled “upon reading V. Shukshin”. The roots of his art go deep into the native land”, Gavrilin commented on the works of Vasily Shukshin, an outstanding Russian writer, actor and film director, a singer of the Russian provinces. The key image of the piece was borrowed from one of Shukshin’s novels - a “noble robber” (Stepan Razin, a Cossack leader of the Russian peasant revolt of the 17th century). The text was compiled of folklore sources and Vladimir Monomakh’s Instructions, a Russian literary monument of the 12th century.

Chimes was premiered in Leningrad and Moscow in 1984. The work which received a State Prize of the USSR won recognition of a broad audience. “It is written with blood of the heart. Living, contemporary music of a deeply national stamp, and above all, of a present-day world-view born here, in our land”, Georgy Sviridov commented on the work.

Chimes was composed for the Moscow Chamber Choir which was founded by the prominent choral conductor Vladimir Minin in 1972 and is still one of the best choirs of Russia has successfully represented traditions of Russian choral signing in this country and abroad.

The recording of Valery Gavrilin’s Chimes performed by the Moscow Chamber Choir with the participation of Rogvold Sukhoverko, a renowned actor of Sovremennik Theatre, Anatoly Lyubimov, an oboist and soloist of the State Academic Symphony Orchestra, and other musicians led by Vladimir Minin was made in 1988.

Recorded: 1965

Firma Melodiya presents a recording of Sergei Taneyev’s opera Oresteia, a revived masterpiece of Russian music.

The author worked on the opera for twelve years (1882-1894), in a period when Prince Igor, the Queen of Spades, Iolanta and Mlada were created. However, Oresteia remained a unique phenomenon in history of Russian opera. Sergei Taneyev was the best and favourite pupil of Tchaikovsky and Nikolai Rubinstein, a prominent educator and music theorist who brought up Rachmaninoff, Scriabin and many other famous pupils. Unexpectedly for his friends and peers, he was inspired with the ancient story (Aeschylus’s tetralogy) which met his aesthetic ideals of harmony and perfection.

Taneyev masterfully used a broad arsenal of music and dramatic techniques of the late 19th century - an intricate system of leitmotifs, evolving dramaturgy of operatic scenes, and a combination of freely recitative and arioso fragments. The special part of the chorus reflects the spirit of ancient theatre with bright orchestral bits frequently becoming culminations (the famous entr’acte The Temple of Apollo at Delphi). The opera is full of tragic anticipation of Fate, which makes it close to Tchaikovsky’s symphonism, but a heartwarming finale resolving the conflict is typical for Taneyev’s views thus deviating from Aeschylus’s fatalism. Wisdom and Love conquer the dark forces of revenge, insidiousness and malice - that is the bottom line of this monumental operatic interpretation.

Oresteia did not have a lucky stage life - it has been staged on a small number of occasions. The version of the State Bolshoi Opera and Ballet Theatre of Belarus realized and recorded in the 1960’s is one of the best productions of the opera. That recording is featured in this set. The main parts are performed by the soloists of the Belorussian theatre V. Chernobayev, L. Galushkina, A. Bokov, T. Shimko, I. Dubrovkin and N. Tkachenko. The choir and orchestra are conducted by the People’s Artist of the Belorussian SSR Tatiana Kolomiytseva.

After a long "drought," the last few years have been a boon for fans and lovers of the Don Cossack Choir. A number of releases of rarely heard recordings have appeared on CD, and now comes an even greater "collectors' prize" -- a full-length DVD featuring rare videos of the choir from 1963 through 1969, performing 33 of its most popular selections. Listening to the Don Cossack Choir is one thing. Seeing Serge Jaroff's inimitable conducting gestures face-on and the expressions on the singers' faces, often in close-up, adds an altogether different dimension to the experience. Discover why this choir was arguably the most widely heard and wildly famous Russian musical act in history, beginning their existence as penniless refugees in a Turkish internment camp and going on to sing more than 10,000 concerts throughout the world over a 60-year period.--V.M.

Bartók’s choral works almost certainly comprise the least known niche of his oeuvre. The primary reason for this may be that these pieces are strongly linked to language (Hungarian, Romanian and Slovak folk texts), are for the most part untranslatable, and in translation are un-sing able, thus even the children’s and women’s choruses often sung in Hungary (mainly for pedagogical purposes) are not popular outside Hungarian speaking territories. Yet these compositions, even purely in terms of number, represent an important thread in the composer’s work, and in terms of artistic value are worth no less than the more imposing pieces.

Charles Daniels, Evangelist Stephen Varcoe, Jesus Stephan Logue, Pilate

J.S. Bach’s ‘Passions’ have been said to employ the word with more than one meaning - as well as telling the story of Christ’s sacrifice, they are simultaneously a celebration of human feeling in the joy and suffering of man’s pilgrimage on earth. The expert early music chamber orchestra Yorkshire Baroque Soloists bring all of these feelings to life in a dramatic and resonant performance of Bach’s Passio Secundum Johannem (St John Passion).

Joined for this recording by the excellent Charles Daniels, Stephen Varcoe and Stephan Loges, the Yorkshire Baroque Soloists have been a leading light in the world of Early Music performance since their formation in 1973.
